in history. host:next is ann, a president obama supporter. caller: good morning. i think exactly the opposite. i think mitt romney looked almost manic and his appearance. i have never seen him flailing his arms around. he told so many lies. he completely turned around all of the things he has been running on the for the past 18 months. he even through the tax policy away. he just changed everything. it was really unbelievable. i think many people looked at him being more aggressive. that is what they were rewarding. once people started paying attention to exactly why he said, they would see that his -- that he told so many lies and distorted what he was trying to say. i think the president look very presidential. he was not aggressive. he explained exactly what he wanted to say. i thought the whole purpose of the debate was for each one to explain what their policy was. romney just completely changed. that is what was so -- i guess it is not so surprising, because that is what he has done is flip-floping. i hope the president would get an ad out or they show what he has been saying and what h

then senator obama of being unqualified to answer the red phone in the middle of the night. our next guest who voted for obama in 2008 says the ad rings true today. joining me now, fox news contributor and columnist for the "new york post," michael goodwin. why does it ring true today? >> we had both of them running, president obama now and then senator and hillary clinton then a senator. they were going to be the dream team when they finally came into the government together after obama won. we had them both in the government. mean while, the phone is still ringing, nobody answered. the libya incident i think is not fully appreciated for the major screw up that it represents that we had this lack of security on september 11, one of our ambassadors killed in a consulate and the fact that the white house then begins to, as i say in the column, weave this web of deceit about what actually happened. right down to sort of creating the idea that there was a demonstration that was hijacked. there was no demonstration. it was a full on assault. al-qaeda groups claim responsibility almost immediately

in the next couple of days i'm going to be looking at the numbers in the other thing very quickly in terms of the minority vote. the other thing about barack obama's election in 2008 was the one something on the order of 43% of the white vote and in most of the national polls that is kind of where he is so that will be another number to look out for. the country is changing and in 2008, three-quarters of the electorate was white which was down from the mid-to high 80s 20 years ago and that number is going to change. and the question is in a very close election i don't think anyone thought it would get seven-point race. i think they thought it would be a two or three-point race. the metrics are there for him to win. speak to me, and i'm sorry to interrupt but to me i wanted to -- to meet the most stunning numbers from 2008, if you take out the 29-year-olds and look at the 30 plus mccain and obama tied and that shows you how important the youth vote is to the president by the way that is why you are seeing air force one showing up at airports near major university in three states on a regula

greater growth in the second quarter of ?iew and still lost than president obama had in this quarter so the economy is worse off. i also know that unemployment is higher than it was under george walker bush. i can't say for sure, but i think the next highest unemployment rate that a president's been re-elected at was 7.2% under reagan. i can't say for sure, but i think it was under 6.5% for george hw bush. i don't know what the inflation rate or interest rate was, but the economy was in better shape in 1992 by any objective measure than it has in 2012 so president obama's in big trouble. >> hi, i just want to take the opportunity to thank you because you use your gifted brain and your considerable verbal skills, writing skills, energy, and fly all over. i'm grateful you're able to do that. >> my great pleasure, thank you. >> my question is what can little people, individual little people do the best right now to support mitt romney? i was a rick santorum supporter, and i'm grateful to have seen it play out. when everybody was played out, now it seems like we're all standing strong and f

obama not pushing as many throughout as bush did. the courts are so important, and they should be discussed in this campaign. i hope in this next debate -- it is important that this has gone under the radar. the presidents are not individual -- not just individuals. they come with advisers. president reagan's nominee robert bork was rejected by the senate for being way out of the mainstream in this country. he did not believe the equal protection clause applies to women. he is opposed to the voting rights act and the silver rights act of 1964. and he believed that corporations are people. he would play a very destructive role in a court of common sense, fairness, justice, diversity of equality and opportunity. those are not left-right issues. i think we need to take a hard look at the courts and the political intensity gap, where the right does understand the court and its powers but the progressive, liberal democratic community has stepped back and not engage with that judicial process or the courts as effectively as they could. host: there are four students on the bus who did
